Polaris Issues Recall for 2016-2017 RZR Vehicles
Recall Addresses Possible Engine Misfires and Overheating Issues

Minneapolis, MN (3/2/2017) - Polaris wants to make you aware of a recall that might affect your current loan vehicles: Model-year 2016-2017 RZR 900, 1000, Turbo and GENERAL 1000. This recall is not related to any of the prior recalls Polaris has announced.

The recall is as follows: The vehicle engine can misfire and the temperatures of the exhaust and nearby components can get too hot and cause the components to melt, and/or a contaminated brake master cylinder may cause unintended brake drag, posing burn and fire hazards.

While there is a very low incident of occurrences, if you are in possession of any of these vehicles, please run the VIN at to see if they are part of the recall. If so, please do not ride and take the vehicle(s) to your local Polaris dealership for repair. Parts are in stock so there should be minimal downtime.

Polaris apologizes for any inconvenience but wants to assure you that they are taking aggressive actions to fix their current issues and prevent future ones. They are making every effort to get this right. There already have been significant improvements to product design, manufacturing, testing and post-sales surveillance processes for all Polaris vehicles, and these efforts are ongoing.
